How can I adjust my partitions?

Episode 1171 (52:26)

Bill from Tarzana, CA

Bill has a drive with 4 partitions, two of which he can't release. Leo says that those may have Windows on them to restore it if he needs it. If he has his own copy, he may be able to do it. Leo advises backing it up first. Then he can try and put the recovery partition at the end of the drive, and try to adjust the partition. Here are some tools that will help Bill manage his partitions:

  • GPartEd
    This is an open source partition editor, but he'd really need to know what he's doing.
  • Acronis True Image
    This is easier to use, but he'll have to pay for it.
  • Partition Wizard
  • EaseUS
    The chatroom recommended this as another option.
